RT Logic allows simulation of Ground Station - satellite communications: Static tests have been successful. Dynamic tests have been performed for simple passes. Future dynamic tests are needed to simulate real orbit communications. Satellite attitude changes antenna gain. Atmospheric and rain losses need to be added. STK Plug-in will be the next step to improve the dynamic tests. There is a possibility of running longer simulations. Simulation of different losses available in the STK Plug-in. Microhard optimization: Effect of Microhard settings on the data throughput have been understood. Optimized settings improve data throughput for LEO communications. Longer hop intervals make transfer of larger packets more efficient (more time between hops in frequency). Use of FEC (Reed-Solomon) reduces the number of retransmissions for long-range or noisy communications.
